Some policies are strange. To be honest, though, /24 is the standard
unless you're receiving directly from your transit, and while I know
there are quite a few networks (unfortunately some of the largest) which
deaggregate on a massive scale, I would say that most ASNs advertise at
the highest aggregation possible.
I'm personally sad that I'm having to start advertising 5 new /23 routes
as 2 of my ISP customers are multihoming and aren't aggregated (IPv4
didn't allow for any growth when I assigned to them).
Thanks for reminding me to check, though. I screwed a bgp config up.
Currently (and never do this, I just haven't finished fixing it), I flag
to not send routes out (instead of flagging to send them), and a screwup
deaggregated a route.
126.96.36.199/23 4777 2516 3356 8025 - Withdrawn - matching aggregate 188.8.131.52/19 4777 2516 3356 8025
^--- errr, neighbor x.x.x.x send-communities please. :)
